Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #10

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Hong Meiling

Story begins here.

This is the kind of comic you get when you make no effort at planning and throw together every single idea as it enters your head. Whee, breaking the fourth wall for a quick laugh ...

I'd originally been going to make the giant-Reimu-image in panel 9 appear superimposed over the glowing balls of light, but I decided it didn't look nice.

Transcript

  1. (The Scarlet Devil Mansion's gateway, with Meiling sleeping at the entrance.)
    Meiling SFX: zzzzz
    Reimu: (off-panel) Aha! The mist seems to be coming from that mansion!
    Marisa: Looks like it's got a useless guard, too! Let's just go right on in!
  2. (Closeup of Meiling as she wakes up and opens one eye.)
    Reimu: (off-panel) Yeah! We can just fly right on by here!
    Meiling SFX: zzzzz--*?
    Marisa: (off-panel) I call dibs on the valuables!
  3. (Meiling leaps up at them in a cloud of danmaku, knocking them both aside.)
    Reimu: Pah, you always call dibs on the valuaaaAAUGH!
    Meiling: SHORYUKEN! (even though she isn't in the pose)
    Marisa: (falling off her broom) Ackpth!
  4. (Meiling lands on the ground, eye glowing nastily.)
    SFX: AND THEN LANDING BEFORE THEY HIT THE GROUND!
    SFX: tap
  5. (Reimu and Marisa catch themselves; Meiling becomes embarassed.)
    Reimu: Get control back get control back get control back ... ah!
    Marisa: (upside-down) Whew, just caught my broom!
  6. (Marisa starts to fly off, annoying the other two.)
    Marisa: Well, I'm gonna go on ahead. You take the guard, Reimu!
    Reimu: What!? You're just gonna leave me by myself!?
    Meiling: W-wait!
  7. Marisa: (off-panel) See ya!
    Reimu: Hmph!
    Meiling: (rising off the ground) Bah ... the mistress will take care of her! I'm gonna take *you* down now!
  8. (Reimu and Meiling face off in the sky.)
    Reimu: I should warn you, I'm Reimu Hakurei, guardian of Gensokyo!
    Meiling: And *I* should warn *you* that none of us in the mansion are ordinary youkai! And the mistress is even *more* powerful than I am!
  9. (A spell card image of Reimu appears, and several multicolored orbs of light slam into Meiling.)
    Reimu: Really? That doesn't sound too hard.
    blue Spell Card: Spirit Sign 「Fantasy Seal」
  10. (A spell card image of Meiling appears, and the background shifts to a darkened sketchy pink background.)
    Reimu: Wha ... you survived!?
    Meiling: Heh heh heh ... I'm a stage 3 boss! We have three health meters!!
    Red Spell Card: Colorful Sign 「Pink Rain」
  11. Meiling: (looking up at where the spell card text was) Wait, what? *Pink* Rain!? It's supposed to be "Colorful Rain!"
    Reimu: Oh yeah ... Thefre hasn't finished adding color-changing for danmaku.
  12. (Reimu brandishes a spell card, grinning wickedly.)
    Meiling: (scared) Oh ... uh ... Could we do this later, then?
    Reimu: Nope!

Facteur Rien

ZUN confirm, in UNL, that China is very powerful in normal battle.
Quote: "I'm always just going easy, you see?
I won't go easy on you in an official duel. "

So, the reason why she sucks in danmaku battle could be... her lack of imagination, or maybe her lack of a useful power.
It's useless to be able to control ki if your opponent blow you up from 50 miles.
